A Team Of Mutants Like You've Never Seen Before

Recommended Posts

Back to the classic Jim Lee style! May she never change. I don't like that look for Havoc tho.

Good call. I had thought it might be Gauntlet too, but I couldn't see the shoulder thing as a gun, and couldn't figure out what he'd have on his shoulder, so I decided I was wrong. I think I also second guessed myself because it was my understanding he's an inhuman. I'd love to see him get some real characterization, though, so I hope you're right!

I think it was intimated that he was an Inhuman, but I don't think there was any history to directly tie him to them. Also, they could pull something like they did with Namor and make him a mutant among his own kind. Either way, he's one of those Jim Lee/Whilce Portacio era characters I wish they would have developed on a lot more at the time.

Edit: Looking at the outstretched arm guy in the middle, those gloves look more and more like those cheezy gloves the Hellions used to wear. As he's resurfaced in the X-Books lately, I'm gonna go way out on a limb and say that guy is Bevatron. His powers are electrical in nature but they have never been fully explained or outlined so they could basically do anything they want with him.

Nanny and Orphanmaker are the next two reveals joining Havok and Psylocke.

Conversely, if we're going old-school Hellions the most "troublesome" would probably be Empath, who would be another strong contender (even if the pose might be a little weird). 

I do vaguely recall the Dark Riders being called Inhumans at some point.  But ehn, that's the kind of detail that's easily retconned.

I think Emplate is a strong possibility for "fringes silhouette" though Sinister remains a strong choice as well (mostly because he'd be personally despised by almost everyone on the team).

On a side note:  I mostly like the mild redesigns for Nanny and Orphan-Maker.

Yeah, but it's his most "iconic/recognizable" look so with this whole "back to basics" approach House of X is taking with most of the costumes it makes sense.

And besides, maybe it means we'll finally get a decent modern Legends version of it....one more on the Outback X-Men Checklist!

This lowkey sabotages current series these Mutants are in, it was just recently Psylocke got announced for Fallen angels series and now this. Imo they could have waited until new year to announce this

Hmmm. A mis-matched group of mutants forming a dysfunctional team. Nope, never seen that before.

Never got the Legends, but I have the Select and besides the scale I am extremely happy with that one. To top, only an Apocalypse figure will do that. Don't know if you are into these, but I def recommend the Select

Tho Nanny and Orphanmaker are indeed unusual I think (besides Havoc and Psylocke) they were probably the least surprising as we all pretty much had them pegged from the jump. Now comes the real mysteries. Is that Wolfsbane or Feral? Who's wearing dreadlocks? I like the Danger prediction. Who's the plain dressed guy and who's wearing the hood?

i doubt it mr sinister will be here..he is so busy in his lab

On one hand I agree that between his seat on the High Council and his Lab he doesn't have time to be on a "team."  But somehow several of the other High Council members are managing it, so...who knows?  Emplate, Danger, and Sinister are all possible at this point.

Wild Child at top, Penance with the fringes.

The two in the center are hard reads, on because it's so plain, the other because it's such a specifically weird composition. I DO like the idea of Bevatron and Gauntlet as I believe they're two interesting (mostly) blank slates. There's a definite outback era feel here, though, so I wouldn't mind these other for reveals tying into that somehow.

Also? If fringes IS Sinister? He can never be too busy since he has so many Sinisters. In fact, I hope if it's him, it's a weird one. 

And if the top is Wolfsbane, I hope this book is called Xfactor and written by Peter David. Hell... I hope that no matter what.

Whoo!  Called it on Scalphunter.

But man this is the weirdest X-team ever.

Good call. I was just about to give you a shout out.

Not too happy about Sinister though. Means we'll lose a major baddie. Hopefully this means we'll get a Scalphunter figure, at least.

"Good guys."  The tweet Marvel used to announce  them definitely didn't make it sound like reformation is particularly in the cards.  The "Micronaut ripoff" is Orphan-Maker.  He's the bodyguard/enforcer of Nanny (The Humpty-Dumpty thing).  They're pretty obscure late 80's/early 90's creations.  Both are mutants though Orphan-Maker's power has never been explicitly revealed.  Nanny's a cyborg-mutant with low-level telepathy/suggestion powers.  Their whole shtick used to be running around gathering up young mutant kids (and killing their parents in the process) to try to "protect" them.

This is definitely an odd lineup. How it's more Marauders than Fallen Angels

It strikes as almost being like an X-Men flavored Suicide Squad.

Nothing like somebody jumping to conclusions because they don't read comics... Then using the inaccurate conclusions to jusify doing so.

Thanks for the update. I remember those 2 characters & didn't like them then & even less now. Waste of space characters imo. As to the other posters comment, I don't need to be current with today's comics to have an opinion on 2 useless characters. And again, Mr Sinister & Scalphunter along with the rest of the Marauders were the main antagonists of the classic "Mutant massacre story arc. You telling me that now the genius powers that be at Marvel are turning them into good guys? Really,  2  characters  that have been pure evil murderers named "Mr Sinister & the other guy, "Scalphunter have now turned over a new leaf & are now good guys?

You haven't read anything about those 2 characters since THEN when you didn't like them, you don't know them now and somehow you like them less. You haven't read this story or how they'll be part of it and think of them as a waste of space already. Sure, you don't need to be current with today's comics to have any opinion whatsoever, but your opinion won't be current either.

    • Right. I don't remember anyone having a problem with Bucky replacing Cap (don't get me started on how many Captain America's there were before the ridiculous Sam controversy- even the Red Skull bodysnatched Cap for a time), or the blonde Black Widow, the Crimson Dynamo, Union Jack, Red Hulks, need I go on. There's nothing in this announcement that says Jack Russell terrier is being wiped out in favor of this new guy. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they end up having both werewolves cross paths.
    • Looking at that Crossbones figure, I think the head is sitting way too high on the neck peg. Once I get it, I'll just Dremel the hole in the head a bit deeper & that should fix the Giraffe issue. These are due to hit the pegs sometime in March?

    • When MARVELS SNAPSHOTS begins in March, fans will get to see Marvel's greatest characters from the Golden Age to today, in new legendary tales told through the eyes of ordinary people! As curator of this landmark series, Kurt Busiek has handpicked the creative teams for each standalone, double-sized issue and he’s put together an amazing assemblage of talent to tackle April’s issues focusing on Captain America and the X-Men. First up, Eisner nominated writer Mark Russell will revisit Jack Kirby’s classic Madbomb storyline from his 1970s run on CAPTAIN AMERICA. “Some people, when they call, you gotta pick up the phone. And Kurt Busiek is one of those people,” says Russell. “I was pretty instantly sold on the project once he started describing it to me— stories about the human cost of these famous conflicts in the Marvel Universe. I truly enjoyed working on this with him.” Known for his work on books like Second Coming and Wonder Twins, Russell says MARVELS SNAPSHOT: CAPTAIN AMERICA will focus on “the Madbomb's impact in the South Bronx, a community which had already been effectively abandoned by the rest of the nation, that community's struggle for survival, and of the search for heroes of its own.” He will be joined by acclaimed artist Ramón Pérez(ALL-NEW HAWKEYE). Next, in X-MEN: MARVELS SNAPSHOT, readers will see the rise of super heroes from the eyes of a young orphan named Scott Summers, the boy who would grow up to be Cyclops. The future X-Men leader couldn’t be in safer hands. Jay Edition, the co-host of the popular X-Men podcast, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, makes his Marvel Comics debut with a tale about one of his favorite characters. “This is a story that's pretty personal to me—because I'm me, and it's a Cyclops story; but even more because it's about the ways that superheroes and the stories around them can become lifelines. If I'm going to be really sappy about it (which I absolutely am), I get to give one of my favorite heroes the same kind of touchstone he's been to me over the years,” says Edidin. “I'd say it's a dream come true, but given that I'm the kind of uptight overachiever who overidentifies with Scott Summers in the first place, maybe also a bit of an anxiety dream come true. That said, it's been a blast to get to sit down and play in a sandbox I've spent years cataloguing and analyzing and explaining." Teaming up with Edidin will be artist Tom Reilly, a rising star artist known for his recent work on Immortal Hulk. Don’t miss this grand celebration of Marvel’s legacy that’s sure to be an instant favorite for True Believers old and new.
